Clare-Dragonfly This is very intense! I keep worrying that Maxim is going to freak out and confess! 9h
Ruthiella I don‘t know…Jan‘s fainting fit might have prevented Maxim from being even more of an imperious and arrogant toff and annoy the magistrate even more… 9h
Ruthiella @Bookwormjillk 🤣🤣🤣 9h

@Kimberlone @Ruthiella after loving the book I am enjoying the adaptation you recommended (while I do my taxes at almost the last possible moment lmao)

Ruthiella @5feet.of.fury Glad to hear it.😃 Good luck with the taxes! 👍 1w
5feet.of.fury @Ruthiella the adaptation was v good! The wedding was the biggest diff, but it kept the key moments 1w
Ruthiella You know, I thought of this movie when reading The Brothers Karamazov when one of the brother‘s ex-fiancee hooks up with the other brother. Like, there‘s the literary precedent! 😂 1w
5feet.of.fury @Ruthiella I hated #thebros so much 1w
5feet.of.fury @Ruthiella I did have to reacted in kind though 1w

dabbe I feel like the hero in a hero's quest journey who just descended into darkness, survived the ordeal, and came out on the other side to a brighter day--though with more white hair on my head. 🥳
dabbe Huzzahs to @BarkingMadRead for her beyond witty hashtags and @Aimeesue, our #dioramadiva. 🤩🤩🤩 Without you, we wouldn't have survived. 🥳🎉🥳 2w

Combined #BookReport and #WeeklyForecast :

Last week was a dumpster fire of a week - I had medical appointments that did not deliver bad news per se but have caused some future explorations needed. My stress has spiked, understandably, and I did much more doom scrolling than reading. But, I did manage to complete two books, including #TheBros !

The next couple of weeks will be stressful, but I hope to escape into reading!

BookmarkTavern I hope your upcoming weeks are much more relaxed for you! 💕 2w
Librarybelle Thank you, @BookmarkTavern ! ❤️ 2w

Graywacke I just love this picture. (Sorry, carry on with the brothers and their ideas) 2w
mcctrish I want to read the book that goes with this picture 2w
BarkingMadRead @mcctrish such a good short story and an amazing movie adaptation! 2w
CatLass007 @mcctrish It‘s in a book of short stories by Stephen King. The movie is The Shawshank Redemption. 2w
BarkingMadRead @mcctrish #itdoesnttakemuch but Stephen King is…. Well…. king 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2w
BarkingMadRead Oh and for those who may not know, the story is called Rita Hayworth and the book is called 2w
mcctrish True 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2w
Ruthiella Apparently Fyodor planned for this to be a three book series. Would he have actually allowed Dmitry to escape? Considering that Dostoyevsky himself was sentenced to Siberia, I wonder… You know- write what you know… 2w

Librarybelle I‘ll just say again I found it weaker than others that we read. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2w
IndoorDame St. Clair claims he wasn‘t hiding from his wife just his kids (I‘m skeptical) I wonder if she ever finds out 2w
CatLass007 It was an odd story, one that I didn‘t particularly enjoy. 2w

dabbe I still want to know:
-what was in the special package Mrs. St. Clair had to get?
-did St. Clair confess the secrets of his lifestyle to his wife?
-Does he keep his solemn oaths, and never take up begging again?
-If so, then how did he maintain his £700+ per year lifestyle?
-He could have gone back to being a reporter, but certainly he couldn't have maintained the estate and a family on £2 per week.
-Maybe he takes a career on the stage. 🤩
CogsOfEncouragement I just finished a rom-com five book series. The last book gave not only one, but TWO satisfying epilogues. I LOVE a good epilogue, especially for a character driven series. But this short story is not that. This a short mystery/puzzle. The point is to figure out the answer, or to be amused/entertained when the answer is revealed. Knowing what everyone is doing a year from now is not the point. I'm fine with the format of these adventures. 2w
CrystalE02 I found this story to be less enjoyable than the others. I am just wondering if St. Clair wife ever found out about him. 2w
kelli7990 I was okay with how this story ended. 2w
Read4life I‘m ok with how it ended given the style of Doyle‘s writing in these stories. As @CogsOfEncouragement said, be amazed by Holmes and on to the next. 🤓 2w
dabbe @Read4life @CogsOfEncouragment ... are you sure you want to just bow to Holmes and move on? We could be like the exclusive club The Baker Street Irregulars where they play the “Sherlockian Game“--where they see Holmes and Watson as REAL people and they analyze the heck out of every single item in every story. For example, essays abound regarding just the one time that Mary calls John “James“ in this story. 🤔 Agree 💯; let's move on! 🤩😂🤗 2w
Aimeesue Wait, don‘t you all just spin those ending out yourselves? Just me? St. Clair obviously goes back to his lucrative begging career in a different disguise with the full support of his wife, who does not want to sell their home and descend into virtual poverty on Qa a week! ? 2w
dabbe @Aimeesue Okay, you now need to publish your dioramas for #thebros and then write some SH pastiches. 🤩😂🤗 2w
mom2bugnbee Am I the only one who thinks that all of the short stories end rather abruptly? Maybe they had to, because of something having to do with publication? Were these short stories serials like some of his longer tales? 2w

BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk sick demented weirdos , that‘s who 🙄 3w
TheBookHippie 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😅 2w
Ruthiella 🥳🥳🥳 2w
mcctrish FD is still writing this book in hell with Freud (edited) 2w
BarkingMadRead @mcctrish 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 2w
dabbe “The epilogue had three parts“ because ... of course it did. FD= #mostlongwindedgasbaginliteraryhistory 2w
dabbe @mcctrish 😂😂😂 2w
mcctrish @dabbe I don‘t even know why he leads with these nonsensical statements about what is coming cuz we know BLAH BLAH BLAH 2w
dabbe @mcctrish And how many times did he say he was going to be succinct with his words and then BLAH BLAH BLAH again to infinity. 😂 2w
mcctrish @dabbe he has absolutely no chill when it comes to words 2w
currentlyreadinginCO @mcctrish laughing so hard at your first comment 2w
currentlyreadinginCO I think that I liked the last chapter best, everyone waiting around for the verdict unexpected by most. Although, weren't we told early on that Alyosha is the hero of this story 🤔, perhaps I misunderstood and he meant like .... the good one ... 2w

What even was that?

I got to the epilogue and decided to finish. I was surprised to see even the epilogue had three chapters 🤣

One star for the book and five stars for the company. #HashtagBrigade #TheBros

@BarkingMadRead if I had known you in high school I would have had better grades in English class. Honestly I don‘t know how you do it every day. @Aimeesue I really hope you publish a book of your hilarious scenes.

BarkingMadRead You did it!! That epilogue was Dostoevsky‘s final FU 🤣 3w
Bookwormjillk @BarkingMadRead yeah it was an FUx3 🤣 3w
Daisey I had the same reaction when I realized the epilogue had chapters. 3w
dabbe @BarkingMadRead Does that then mean that we get to say back to Dostoevsky to STFU? 😂 3w
BarkingMadRead @dabbe if only 🤣🤣🤣 3w
